Dual Output LNB Supply And Control Voltage Regulator With I2C Interface For Advanced Satellite Set-Top Box Designs
The ISL6422 is a highly integrated voltage Regulator and Interface IC, specifically designed for supplying power and control signals from advanced satellite set-top box (STB) modules to the low noise blocks (LNBs) of two Antenna ports. The device is consists of two independent current-mode boost PWMs and two low-noise linear Regulators along with the circuitry required for 22kHz Tone generation, modulation and I2C device Interface The device makes the total LNB supply design simple, efficient and compact with low external component count.
Two independent current-mode boost converters provide the linear Regulators with input voltages that are set to the final output voltages, plus typically 0.8V to insure minimum power dissipation across each linear Regulator This maintains constant voltage drops across each linear pass element while permitting adequate voltage range for Tone injection.
The final regulated output voltages are available at two output terminals to support simultaneous operation of two Antenna ports for dual Tuners The outputs for each PWM CAN be controlled in two ways: Full control from I2C using the VTOP1, VTOP2, VBOT1, and VBOT12 bits, or Set the I2C to the lower range (13V/14V) and Switch to the higher range (18V/19V) with the SELVTOP1 or
SELVTOP2 pin. All the functions on this IC are controlled via the I2C bus by writing 8-bit words onto the System Registers (SR). The same Register CAN be read back, and 4-bits per output will report the diagnostic status. Separate enable commands sent on the I2C bus provide independent standby mode control for each PWM and linear combination, disabling the output into shutdown mode. Each output channel is capable of providing 750mA of continuous current. The overcurrent limit CAN be digitally programmed.
The External modulation input EXTM1, EXTM2 CAN accept a modulated Diseqc command and transfer it symmetrically to the output. Alternatively, the EXTM1 or EXTM2 pin CAN be used to modulate the continuous internal Tone
The FLT pin serves as an interrupt for the processor when an over temperature, overcurrent or backwards overcurrent fault conditions is detected by the LNB controller or when both channels are disabled by the I2C EN bits set low. The nature of the fault CAN be read of the I2C Registers
